- Samthing Soweto has taken Mzansi by storm with his new album, Isphithiphithi
- Fans are loving the music he has given them and it is doing awesomely well on the charts
- It looks like he is flying high, but the muso admitted that he has struggled to make ends meet for almost a year
Up until as recently as a month ago, hitmaker Samthing Soweto, real name Samkelo Mdolomba, has been having a hard time to make ends meet.
TimesLIVE reports that the musician went from earning money with Akanamali to struggling financially for over a year.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Samkelo said things started looking up when DJ Maphorisa dropped Amatombazane.
"I spent half of 2019 having a hard time and struggling financially. Then DJ Maphorisa dropped Amatombazane on his EP and that generated some shows for me. So I wasn't breathing with water close to my nose.
"While this was happening I wasn't sleeping, I was travelling to the studio and working on my album."
The popular muso admitted that he's not where he wants to be.
"I'm not where I want to be financially. I'm having a hard time. I had to go back to the drawing board. But now most of my album is charting and radio is playing the entire thing. That's unheard of. I'm willing to do almost anything for the success I'm seeing now."
With the way that Mzansi loves Isphithiphithi he may find himself financially secure pretty soon.
